In this study, CLEX researchers used aircraft observations from twenty flights during three Austral winters to study the microphysical and reflective properties of shallow convective clouds over the mid-latitude Southern Ocean.

Research brief: tropics and SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE subtropics were drier in the mid‑Pliocene Warm PeriodNovember 2, 2020 2:28 pm Comments Off on Research brief: tropics and SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE subtropics were drier in the mid‑Pliocene Warm Period
New study shows November-to-March precipitation (when rainy season peaks over most of the Southern Hemisphere land mass) was significantly reduced both in the Southern Hemisphere tropics and subtropics due to a weakening of the subtropical convergence zones during the mid-Pliocene Warm Period.
This study looks at the average climate in the northern hemisphere with a simplified climate model. It considers the atmospheric effects of mountain ranges (Tibet, Rockies), contrasts between land and ocean surface, and ocean currents at the surface (such as the Gulf Stream) and their impact on winter climate.
A new study explores a new, probabilistic way of prediction of stratospheric warming events in the Northern Hemisphere based on dynamical arguments produces meaningful forecasting information around ten times longer than traditional model forecasting.
